The small class sizes at Stanley Clark benefit our children immensely, year by year, and we have profound respect for the arts program lately, watching our oldest child experience the pleasures and opportunities for growth in drama and chorus. Stanley Clark has most certainly received us as family. The school enriches the lives of our children and our family on a daily basis!

We are so happy that we chose Stanley Clark for our children. The staff provide exceptional attention and care for each student, with small class sizes and an enriching environment where students are able to grow, learn and thrive. The emphasis on character and leadership development, along with a focus on sciences, art, music, and foreign languages are just a few of the qualities that make SCS stand out. We're confident that our children are in the right place and look forward to growing with the SCS community.

We have been so happy with our experience at Stanley Clark. I am an alumna as well as a parent, so my husband and I knew that Clark offers the finest preschool/elementary education in the area, but I was floored at how far the school has come over the years. Our preschool and kindergarten-aged daughters are being taught by well educated specialists in art, music, movement/gym and so much more. I feel confident when I drop them off in the morning that they are loved as they are at home, and it's clear that they feel Clark spirit and pride. One of the best things about Clark is that you send your kids to school with children whose parents are also focused on quality character and academic education. This is a place where it is "cool" to be smart and kind, as it should be!

If you're looking for a great quality education for your child along with the availability of music, art, sports, foreign languages, clubs, before/after school care, then Stanley Clark School should be #1 on your list. The teachers, staff and the facilities are great. Small class sizes, friendly staff, caring teachers, great learning experience for years to come. Stanley Clark School is a great foundation academically/athletically for any child.

When jobs at Notre Dame brought us to South Bend a few years ago, we found a preschool place at Stanley Clark for our son, who felt at home there right away. He's really shy, so Clark, where all the students (and staff, too) make an effort to know and use everyone's name, has been a great fit from day one. The academic programs, support, and attention to each child's talents and challenges, are brilliant, and the teachers, both "homeroom" teachers, but also the art, music, movement, PE, and language teachers, all really engage with the kids (and I love that from preschool the kids have specialist art teachers, language teachers, music teachers, etc., as the level of education is really high). We've been at schools where the teachers are overstretched and not given the time, resources or support to think about the best class activities and lesson plans, or bigger projects that respond to the children's talents and new interests, but at Clark the teachers are energized and have time to be engaged with each student, and this pays off. I've also been really pleased that without pushing a specific religious agenda, at Clark, both students and teachers, model and teach integrity, respect, and what it is to be a good human being. It's a great community and an amazing school. So pleased with it.

We are so happy with Stanley Clark. It has made our move back to the midwest so much easier to know that our children are in a great place. Small class sizes, state of the art facilities, and a phenomenal teaching staff that is both steeped in the fundamentals and adaptable depending upon the kid/situation. Growth mindset is everywhere at SCS and the approach spans all of the many offerings, including: art, music, coding, athletics, and much more.
